After hearing the tape from 6-27-85 I had always wanted to hear the boys play Stagger Lee. I went to 5 shows in '87 and no Staggers. 7 shows in '88 and still nothing. I was 0 for 10 in 1989 until finally Jerry must have made a subliminal connection with me when he broke it out late in the set on 10-20-89 (followed by the twice played California Earthquake). I'll never forget leaving that day with the satisfaction of finally hearing my favorite song. Ironically, I caught it 2 more times within the next few shows. Anyway you asked what I remember, and unfortunately those days are foggy to say the least. Happy memorial day to everyone and especially the brave young soldiers serving us in the past and present.
